The 4th of July is kind of like the mid-way point of summer.
I love the holiday but I hate that June has left us.
I found this little shirt for Addison at a garage sale for a buck.
The skirt was $5 at Wally's and her bow is left over from last years ribbon stash.
I thought she looked pretty festive for the day.
I love summer and of course it's goes by way too fast. I want to take in every fair and festival around. I want to travel, grow flowers and spend time just soaking up the sun.
Over the 4th, we made it down to one of our favorite festivals, River Fest in Lacrosse, WI. We had little Addison in tow and it was a really fun day! She got to go down some gigantic blown up slides.
Ride around on a cute little train.
Have her little face painted.
And cool off in the fun fountain/ kiddie wading pools. There was a magician and a really amazing clown act. We left with one little tired 2-1/2 year old who kept saying, "I don't want to ever leave, I don't want to ever go home, not ever, not ever. " hehe.
My flowers are growing like gang busters and filling in beautifully!
We've had beautiful weather lately. Mostly in the 80's, sometimes humid, sometimes not. I prefer the not, but the plants seem to like the humid.
And my hydrangeas are making me smile this year! Last year between the early heat wave and the low rain I had maybe one bloom. This summer they are full of blooms .
This is a smaller clematis I have near the garage. It's doesn't get as much sun as my larger one but with the rain and warm temps it's done wonderfully this year.
I planted 6 teeny impatience that I got for a buck. This old bird bath has worked great as a planter for them.
I have always loved daisies!And I am thrilled with my lilies! I put one teeny tiny one in here last summer hoping it might grow. Well grow it did and divide and bloom! I am a new lover of lilies, they are amazing plants and I am going searching for some great deals on them to plant mid-summer.
How is your summer going friends?
